You need to be able to trust your heating system, but staying warm and keeping your living space heated doesn’t have to be rocket science. It can be kept simple and cost-effective with a regular maintenance. With the holidays and everyone staying at home, we all seek comfort from the external factors such as wind and snow.
Everyone knows that the costs of keeping a house warm during the seven months of cold weather we get in the area can rise rapidly when it comes to your house, especially in the Northern Illinois area. To prevent this, we recommended scheduling a residential heating maintenance service in Wheaton IL with an expert from Blue Frost Heating & Cooling.
Making an appointment to check your furnace every year should never be neglected, and the maintenance should be done before the leaves start turning. Without a periodic check, a heating system’s regular wear will significantly decrease its efficiency. In the long run, this will increase your house’s heating costs and decrease the lifetime of the appliance and duct systems. But don’t worry; we’re here to help you.

Steps to a Reliable System
We all know that prevention in the best medicine.
The first step to evaluate the general state is a visual inspection and checking for proper thermostat activation. It’s a good idea to start taking care of your heating system by paying attention to your thermostat. When testing the thermostat that controls your HVAC system, turn it all the way up to make sure your furnace is functioning properly. If it stops, the problem might be the thermostat and not the heating system itself, but it could be an indicator of a needed service repair. It could also be an overheating problem, which can also be detected and fixed by our trained professionals.
Then dusting and cleaning the air ducts from debris can prevent surges and wasted heat. When a furnace uses fuels such a as natural gas and propane, it’s also essential to check for carbon monoxide levels in the air output so that your air quality doesn’t have any harmful gas remnants that will circulate your home.
